A term that allegedly dates back to 1855 (No, Seriously). Things that have previously been accused of being ‘(un)Australian’ include: ball-tampering, backstabbing politicians, referring to thongs as ‘flip-flops’, befriending New-Zealanders, holding a non-Australian passport, vegetarianism, various governments’ asylum seeker policies, and even worker strikes in the '90s.

Four Letter Word Theatre gives you a double bill show offering two unique responses to a term that highlights the prejudice and paradox, the illusion, delusion and confusion at the heart of the Australian psyche:
